Clippers hire Kevin Garnett as team consultant

Kevin Garnett has returned to the NBA … well, in a part-time position.

After retiring as an active player just before this season following a two-decade career, Garnett made a training camp appearance with the LA Clippers. Garnett worked with the Clippers’ big men, and coach Doc Rivers said KG put on a clinic he’d “pay a lot of money to see.”

Apparently, the Clippers are paying KG to see it a little more often.

Garnett played for Rivers in Boston for six seasons, where they won the 2007 NBA title. Over 22 NBA seasons, the 7-foot Garnett averaged 17.8 ppg and 10 rpg. The Clippers, who started the season 26-14, have two of the NBA’s best post players in DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin, who was spotted getting shots up post-practice today as he rehabs from knee surgery.
